[MPlayer-users] Play a File, Repeat to Start, Pause

As an MPlayer newbie, I hope you will pardon my ignorance and assist me
in addressing a current dilemma. My workplace, Pamplin Historical Park,
has for several years been showing a film using the Kaffeine media
player, which has worked well. However, I am now persuaded that MPlayer
would serve as a more satisfactory option, and so was hoping to migrate
I would like to be able to configure the following, either in the
command line or through slave mode, but am unsure of how to do so.
1. Call and play the file wst.mov in fullscreen mode - something like
"mplayer -fs wst.mov" to start with
2. After a complete play through, I would like MPlayer to "repeat" to
the start of the file and pause
3. To show the film again, all a museum staff member would have to do
would be to press the spacebar to begin another showing, after which,
MPlayer would again return to and pause at the start of wst.mov
4. Because the film would be shown on a projector, I would prefer it if
the player would never have to exit fullscreen mode.
I realise this is probably alot easier that I am imagining, and I
eagerly await your response. Further, if there is a simpler approach to
achieving the same ends as above, I am certainly open to all suggestions.
Thanks and make it be a great day!
